Tiana Noselle is an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She sided with the Salidar Aes Sedai and was appointed their Mistress of Novices (LoC, Prologue).

Tiana is short and slight with large brown eyes and a dimple. She manages to look young, even with the ageless look (CoT, Ch. 17; KoD, Ch. 23).


  • Tiana is appointed the Mistress of Novices for the Salidar Aes Sedai. (LoC, Prologue).
  • After re-unification, Tiana is replaced as Mistress of Novices by Rosil
  • When Rand visits the White Tower, Tiana gives him a letter, presumably from Verin (ToM, Ch. 3).


  • Tiana does not see Theodrin and Faolain as full sisters (ACoS, Ch. 11).
  • Tiana doesn't like the fact that novices are making cuendillar. She does not think that they should be handling a weave of such complexity (CoT, Ch. 17).
  • Tiana has worn the shawl for more than thirty years (CoT, Ch. 17).
  • Tiana was very angry with the novices who covered Nicola's running away. She decided to punish each novice every day until Nicola was found (CoT, Ch. 30).
  • Romanda does not consider Tiana to be a good Mistress of Novices (KoD, Ch. 23).


"Tiana might show a little kindness to a novice, if only a little; she felt Accepted should know better, and made sure they felt the same long before they left her small cubby-hole of a study." (Nynaeve about Tiana; Lord of Chaos, Prologue).

"Tiana Noselle was the Mistress of Novices, known equally well for a comforting shoulder when a novice needed to cry and an unyielding stance when it came to rules." (Egwene about Tiana; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 9).

"Perhaps you should run to see whether Sharina has any further instructions for you." (Romanda; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 23).
